|Stammer - Strum - Stammer|
STRUM is Stammer's third album and was released in 2002. The title refers to the prominent presence of all kinds of snare sounds throughout the album. STAMMER grew out of the fascination with sound. Instead of subordinating sound to harmony and melody, pure sound is treated as an extraordinary way of expression. Using synthesizers and computer programs to explore and catch 'found' sounds, serendipity plays an important role in the creation proces...

Freiraum's release for AlpineChic is a full throttle breakbeat electronica 6-song ep. The Zurich duo present overdriven synthi sounds combined with danceable beats and pumping basslines in a mix that make this a fresh release for your summer groove. The 6-songs are a well balanced mix from electro to big beat reminding of its most powerful releases to indian atmospheres and vocal interludes with uptempo breakbeats and all this without falling into clichés or losing its feet moving power.

I composed this album while moving from one city to another. It was all done on my PC laptop with free software, as apposed to my Apple with bought software and hardware. I wanted to make it in the theme of science fiction and a love affair with a laptop. A bizarre goal indeed, with great success I might add. This music falls within the genre of Electro/Dance/IDM. I do hope you enjoy this album as much as I do, dance a little jig for me...

It's interesting that Mono211 was originally meant to be the 'main label' that us here at Monotonik released music on. This was mainly because we were known in our early .MOD days for being eclectic, unclassifiable genre jumpers, and we wanted to carry that tradition on. But in the end, we found our love of idm+videogamebleep action on Monotonik took front stage (and rightly so!) But most of all, we found that there's just not that many artists making good but 'unclassifiable' music that really ...

The fractured temperament. Colophon is the multi-talented Ed Powley (York, UK). I first heard his brilliant expositions in densely layered post-rock by downloading the "Imprint/Tailpiece" EP at Nishi a few months ago. He uses a formula of power, beauty, and silence. How these elements are proportioned is the real work of art here -- it is done with great dexterity, often resulting in songs which feel unusually triumphant...

A step forward for our two friends from Zurich, showing us a great potential and a musical growth. The 4-tracks (apparently selected from 50 new tracks!) vary from breakbeat, disco and psychedelic lounge and are as fresh a...

In this sense the music on this CD can be considered as the soundtrack for a non-existing film...
